Being new to the area and having to work very early in the morning to late at night Clair was very helpful in making my stay restful and peaceful. I enjoyed the private posh looking rooms. It was a delightful stay and I loved the friendly host's and neighborhood and shops right at my fingertips.

A older Victorian home that had been moved to the location. The entrance was a little steep because the foundation had been raised. Once inside you can enjoy the beauty of this charming home and Claire's hospitality and great cooking. Ladner is a small safe community with adequate restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable . We may be back as early as June.

Our first night in Canada could not have been better. Lovely host and food. Room was good and location great for airport and ferries. Will visit again if visiting Vancouver.

We arrived later than planned and Clair stayed up to greet us and make us feel comfortable. We had a wonderful breakfast and enjoyed conversing with our host about the history of the home and the area. We also loved all the beautiful flowers that decorated the property and would recommend a stay at Clair's if you are in the area.

We stayed in the Jade Room which was very roomy for the two of us and had a nice deck overlooking the gardens. (The Jade Room is on the 2nd floor) The house was very charming with each room decorated in its own theme. Our gourmet breakfast each morning was delicious. Clair alternates each morning between sweet foods and savory foods. Morning 1 included french toast and homemade blueberry syrup and a berry parfait. Morning 2 included lobster ravioli, halibut and a poached egg over sauteed peppers, as well as a custard with berries and chocolate sauce in a phyllo shell. Clair checked with us beforehand to see if there were any foods we didn't like or couldn't eat. She sat with us each morning at breakfast, where we talked and got to know each other. Clair had alot of information/recommendations about the area which was helpful. Clair made us feel like we were staying in her home rather than a hotel. We weren't able to partake in the afternoon cocktail but understand she has wine/sherry in the afternoon. Location was good to be able to walk to restaurants and stores in Ladner. Also, close to the Ladner market which is twice a month.

The house and gardens were so delightful. The owners were exceptionally gracious and informative and fun. Our breakfast was so beautiful, I had to take a photograph of it! A great way to kick off the BC start of our trip.

We stayed at Clairs B & B in Ladner, it was a wonderful experience. Clair was a great hostess and her breakfast were out off this world, you could tell she has a love of cooking. The house was charming with it art deco look, and history. We would highly recommend Clairs.

Don't arrive early, before check-in time, she'll keep reminding you about your error, but very nice lady, excellent property, great breakfasts. Two of the rooms have bathtubs but with hand-held shower attachments, very hard to use, she could easily install a fastener to hold these hard to use devices. Again, a beautiful property. chosen by us due to its proximity to the ferries.
Thank-you so much for your honest feedback. In a small business like ours reviews are very important to us. We do have a strict 3:30p.m. check-in time in order to prepare the rooms for our special guests and to run necessary errands to get the freshest ingredients for your breakfast. I will arrange for an early check-in with advance notice but am often unprepared when guests arrive unexpectedly early. We are sorry my teasing was taken poorly. Our guest/reviewer has not indicated to which room/suite they chose. As a heritage B&B it can be difficult to modernize all the bathrooms. Our lovely Amethyst Suite ( equiped with one of the two original bathrooms to this 1922 heritage home) does have the clawfoot tub and a shower curtain has been installed, but it still must be used with a hand held shower attachment. In the Amber Room we were not so lucky. It has a window and the tub is away from the wall so intallation of a shower is nearly impossible and we have chosen to maintain the integrity of the heritage building. These two accommodations are listed as "Bathtub Only". Our 4 other rooms/suite do have proper shower only and tub and shower combinations. When you stay with Us - The Hardest Part is Saying Goodbye. The Rest is Easy!
